I've recorded two new albums for 2014. The first "Them Feet" will be released January 29 and the second in August.
I’ve produced the records together with producer duo Dark Lama. “Preserve mistakes, keep it earthy, let go of control, defy the genre and experiment with sound and form. These were our main guidelines going into the studio. Part of the challenge was also to use and find a new context for instruments that I usually don’t like. But the biggest challenge was to write only positive lyrics or lyrics that made me laugh.
I've had a fantastic week with a bunch of song-writers from Sweden, Canada and the U.S. We've spent four days out in the woods writing songs together and then performing them at Live at Heart in Örebro, Sweden.
Since Saturday I've had the great privilege of being part of something called The House of Songs. I've been given te opportunity to write songs with a bunch of fantastic songwriters from around the world. Troy Campbell, Michael Blair, V Marc Fort, Aimee Bobruk, Bobby Sant, Joel Deluna, Joacim Dubbelman, Linda Sahlberg, Anna-Karima Holm, Dylan Guthro and Mo Kenney.
Han ger konserter, deltar i en paneldebatt och är med på skrivarläger. Mångsidige Tom Levin har fullt upp på årets Live at Heart.
My friend Magnus ”Mange” Olsson passed away earlier this spring. He’s a legend within the ocean racing world and one of the most inspiring persons I’ve ever known. To his honor I wrote the song ”King Neptune” that I perform at his memorial service June 16th. You’ll find Mange’s ”Minnesfond” at www.mangeolssonsminnesfond.se
"Tom Levin is an artist to be reckoned with. His uncompromising style of writing and his honest vocals will stand the test of time and see him reach the hearts and ears of many for years to come."
At the end of March I'm playing at Canadian Music Week int Toronto.
March 20th at Times Café @ 12:00AM and on March 22nd at The Marriott, Lounge Bar, Bay Street @ 9:00 PM.
